Dive, surf, climb and tee off - no matter your favoured outdoor pursuit, a luxury charter yacht can take you there in style and comfort. Set a course for adventure on board luxury crewed yacht charters.
While the epitome of luxury and relaxation, a charter yacht is also the ideal vehicle to bring you to your favourite adventurous activities and outdoor pursuits anywhere in the world. Whether it’s scuba diving, fishing, heli-skiing, glacier exploring, surfing, exploring by submarine or playing the best golf courses that gets your heart pounding, a super yacht can take you there.
Best of all, after an exhilarating day enjoying the outdoors, you can retire to the lap of luxury aboard your yacht. Relax on deck with your cocktail of choice, relieving well-worn muscles in the spa tub and replaying the day’s excitement in your mind. A yacht is the perfect complement to an active lifestyle. Many have gyms on board so you can keep in optimal shape for your adventures, and the spas replete with hot tubs, saunas and steam showers will ease any pains and pulled muscles earned along the way.
It should go without saying that if you’re into water sports of any kind, a yacht charter is the ideal holiday. Instead of staying in a hotel in order to enjoy scuba diving, why not have a luxury yacht take you to the best spots in your private tender, no crowds to contend with and all according to your schedule. Avid divers will enjoy a yacht charter in Raja Ampat, Indonesia - a chain of islands as beautiful as they are deserted, where you’ll nary see another boat for days except the rare dive live aboard. The diving here is spectacular, the diversity of macro life like no where else, and while diving you might see an amazing display of manta rays overhead.
Those looking to check off some big dives can accomplish these on a yacht charter. In Australia, dive the Great Barrier Reef and afterwards take in the glorious archipelago that is the Whitsundays. Or visit the Blue Hole in Belize, marvelling at the depths of the brilliant blue dive locale all while enjoying a charter through the pretty islands of Belize. Many charter yachts have scuba equipment and their own dive masters who can plan the ideal dive itinerary and certify new divers as well.
If surfing is more your cup of tea, charter a yacht in Costa Rica - or Fiji in the South Pacific - and have the tender take you out to some of the biggest breaks. Your crew can hook you up with the best surf guides and instructors in any location to make sure you are in on all the best action.
If kite-surfing is more your speed, a yacht charter in the Dominican Republic or Aruba can take you to the best beaches for high-flying, kite-surfing enthusiasts.
It’s not just water sports that are easily accessible by yacht, cold weather adventure also beckons. Try ice hiking with a trusted guide in Antarctica or take a tender ride to explore glaciers in Alaska. After a day out in the brisk cold, you’ll be back on your yacht in minutes, warming up in the sauna or even in front of the fireplace, an amenity found on some yachts, before settling in for a gourmet meal.
And who says a yacht charter in the Mediterranean in the winter is unheard of? Some yachts remain year round in the Med, or in the newly favoured cruising ground of Montenegro, putting you only a helicopter ride away from fantastic skiing. A charter in Chile can bring you to the best heli-skiing, and while there you can also explore the country’s desolate deserts and the mind-blowing landscapes of Patagonia.
Maybe your idea of adventure is more of the scientific exploration variety. There are expedition yachts that have been refitted just for this purpose, boasting research labs and submarines, ready to let you explore for the week, diving deep and connecting with nature on another level; a deeper blue level.
A yacht charter can also bring you to less extreme pursuits, such as fishing, golfing and horseback riding. Follow the billfish circuit in The Bahamas or cast off in Costa Rica and Panama, with many larger yachts offering their own sport fish boat as part of the package. And what better way to visit multiple Caribbean golf courses in one trip than sailing to them by super yacht?
If you can dream it, it’s likely your charter yacht can take you there. Plot a course for adventure and a holiday you’ll never forget!
